It has been an enjoyable and busy start to 2017 in the School Library. The Year 7 students have enjoyed coming to the Library before school, lunch-time and after school.
Which Club shall I join?
There are lots of clubs and activities in the Library this year. Come along at any stage and join in. The Homework & Study Skills Group is specifically to help Year 7s get organised for high school. They can get their diaries set up; learn helpful tips on their time management, what their learning style is and how to stay focussed at school.
The Robotics & Coding Club is very popular with 40 students attending and enjoying their first steps into the Coding World. Several students from 2016 have continued to attend and are very good mentors for the new members.
